Disney Just Dropped New Alexa Skills & Now You Can Chat with Chewbacca

Read next

Oh happy day! Disney just added two new options to its Disney-themed voice skills!

Starting today and available exclusively on Amazon Kids+ on compatible Echo devices, kiddos can now ask Alexa to open Frozen Sing! and Star Wars: C-3PO Translates! The two new features join a slew of others that include Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, and Marvel-themed skills.

First up, say “Alexa, open Frozen Sing!” and choose from 10 popular songs from Disney’s Frozen and Frozen 2. Get up to par in “Rehearsal Mode” before making it count in “Spotlight Mode” where kids can sing without lyrics or have the option to use high or low volume lyrics.

If you have an Alexa screened devices, you’ll get visuals for each song and a visual congratulations at the end of each performance.

Always wonder what Chewbacca was saying? Now just say, “Alexa, open C-3PO Translates!” to learn tons of alien languages from the Star Wars galaxy.

This skill is hosted by C-3PO and SD-89 and teaches key phrases in Shyriiwook and Droidspeak. Once you’ve gotten the hang of it, try talking with the characters in their native language. You can even try beeping it up with R2-D2 and BB-8!

To instill the new skills just open the Alexa app on your and tap the menu icon at the top-left. Then, open the top menu and tap “Skills & Games,” then the magnifying glass icon to search for the skill, and finally tap “enable to use.”
